Same frameset, same components, same features but a new design. We've renewed the Raval frame so that it continues to be the best urban bicycle.
Our own brand of bicycles and frames is a combination of our experience, your feedback and our will to keep on and explore cities. Here you have our first model – Raval. It’s the neighbourhood in which everything started, where we have long brainstormed and because it’s a defining part of the culture, treasures and shape of our favourite city – Barcelona.
The Santafixie RAVAL model is very light, weighing only 9.5 Kg. Its frame and fork are made with 6061 aluminium, a tough and strong variety. We propose a 46t chainring and a 16t sprocket, so that it’s easy and quick to move around on it. You can also choose amongst three different handlebar styles: riser, drop and bullhorn bars.
Santafixie conjugates passion and effort, bikes and cities. We’re the children of an ever-changing culture – metropolitan and frenetic. We move as nomads amongst this stream, until we become explorers of the urban world. We’re fans of cities – we move in a fast and safe way and meanwhile we observe, find and explore our environment.
Bikes are the amulets that are always at our side – they’re our compasses, our horses, our companions. They’re the ideal vehicle for those who believe in the future, in cities and the power of people.
This combination – bikes and cities – was what firstly inspired Santafixie.com. We’ve been selling different models and a lot of accessories over 6 years now, which has let us meet, talk and share our experiences with city and bike enthusiasts. Contemporary explorers from over 30 countries, that made us realize that it’s time to keep growing and do our bit to build our ideal tomorrow – more bikes inside cities in order to create a better world.
This bicycle comes in a well protected box, about 80% assembled. The most complicated is already mounted from the factory and the rest is quite easy to do. You will have to place the front wheel, the pedals, the saddle and adjust the handlebar.
At the top you will see a video where one of our mechanics explains in a few simple steps how to correctly assemble this. If you do not feel confident to finish the assembly, we recommend you take the bicycle to a nearby bicycle store/workshop for a specialist to complete the bicycle build.
